You Just Came up with 100 reasons......

Real Estate Broker/Owner with BLRGUY(Beach & Luxury Realty Inc)

You Just Came up with 100 reasons why something CAN'T be done...can you give me 1 reason why you CAN!  

If the word Can't is part of your regular vocabulary...chances are you aren't very successful!  

I am sorry...but that is true!Listen to successful people...do you ever hear those negative words come out of their mouths?I CAN answer that...Probably not!  

If you say you can't and believe you can't...then chances are...you are already defeated!  

Look in the mirror my friends and listen to the words that come out of your mouth!....the next time you hear the word CAN'T come out of your mouth....ask yourself...HMMMM..

How can I do this?

How can I get that listing?

How can I get that buyer to work with me?

I can make that appointment!

I CAN!

I CAN!

I CAN!

I CAN!

I CAN!  

Just remember my friends....those who can't WON'T....Those who can...probably WILL!

With two lovely grand children one aged five and the other seven the word, "I can't" was used once or twice. I would say to them both that there is no such word as, "I can't, it is always, I can"

Amen to that!  It is a lot easier to make an excuse for not doing something.  But, actually doing it can be a lot more rewarding.  If there is something that seems to be standing in your way, figure out a way to get around those obstacles.  Obstacles are just that, there are ways around them.  You just have to want it bad enough.

Can't is a very over used and badly used word.  Won't or choose not to are more appropriate most of the time.  Great post.

Wow!  Are we ever on the same wavelength.  When my kids were growing up, I would always tell them that there is no such word as "can't".  They grew up with positive attitudes.  As I always say:  "Where there's a will, there's a way."

now blrguy

when did I EVER give you 100 reasons why someone CANN'T? lol

why if I had that much time to sit around long enough to find 100 cann't s

 most often - I'd  been able to HAVE already GOT  the JOB DONE!!

so whether you're very efficient or just plain lazy..

better to save yourself a great deal  of  time

and  lose that annoying  "I cann't, I cann't"  rhyme!

***************************************************************

            "I cann't I cann't- and I'll tell you why!"

 

Because when your favorite Tare

of  "I cann't I can't- I'll tell you why" fills the Air,

 Your spouse will only Stare

more concerned that they either got nothing new  or clean to wear.

And don't  go bother them-your kids don't  really Care.

If a good  friend even listens-that would be Rare.

 More importantly  perhaps- Your boss won't buy into your Dare

that you cann't because life's just not Fair.

He'll just say that somebody soon-better  grow a new Pair

or you can keep it up  and likely  your cupboards  will  soon  be  Bare.

as he'll let you go and hire someone more positive with lots of Flair.

Then maybe you'll learn "I cann't, I cann't I'll tell you why" is a cry of those going  NOWHERE.

I have been guilty of the "can't" do at times. We just need to re-program our mindset and attitude. Thanks for reminding us of this and showing how we can start becoming positive...again!

I will write more like this. Its just the way I tick. You has a deal for me. I love helping you all close purchse deals first and foremost. But remember I have helped a client recently that was just about to refi with the NO Closing Cost radio ad. We have all heard them them promise you no funds to close and they will pay for your closing cost. What I saw was unbelievable. I got his GFE. The rate was 1.5% higher and junk fees were inflated BIG TIME! I was able to save him $1000 per monthly and over $75,000 over the life of his term all with out refing once rates get better, unlike the radio ad said. I have no application fee no credit report fee and 15% title fees on refi's that you send to me by the end of Feb.

Last 20 minutes with me could save your clients 20 years off their mortgage.
